The Banner of Truth 2007 Annual Ministers' Conference

Some of you either are a pastor or seminarian, or know of either one, who really ought to be at the annual Banner of Truth Ministers' Conference. In my mind, there are several things that differentiate this event from most any other conference.
(1) The Audience - Men who are engaged in or preparing for Christian ministry - that would include pastors, elders, deacons, missionaries, seminary students.
(2) The Goal - To provide ministering servants with rich spiritiual food in the form of the solid preaching of God's Word. No "How to Make Your Bulletin Prettier" seminars or "Sure Fire Steps to Grow Your Church" sessions. We are out to feed the ones who have been doing the feeding for the past 51 weeks (or preparing to feed the flock of God in the near future).
(3) The Fellowship - I hear time and time again what an incredible time of fellowship it is because we basically all live and eat and worship together during that week. We don't disperse to hotels and restaurants throughout the area for meals and nights; we stay together. It's something that really creates one of the hallmarks of this event.
(4) The Worship - Just stand in the middle of hundreds of men who are singing some of the great hymns of the faith with little or no accompaniment. The first time I heard this last year, I just stopped in my tracks. It was incredible.
Check your calendars and help get the word out. It's going to be a great time together.

Two questions, Steve:

1. Does a "Bible College" student qualify as a "seminary" student?

2. Does the fee include sitting on the porch late into the evening hours sipping coffee solving all of life's complexitites?

Just thought I'd ask... :)

Ah, I look forward to several "late into the evening hours sipping coffee solving all of life's complexities" as we mutually encourage one another in the faith. Should I send you a brochure?
